(1) omitting paragraph (6) and inserting the following paragraph: “(6) the Committee is to report by Friday, 30 September 2022”; and
(2) inserting a new paragraph (7A): “(7A) the Committee is to be dissolved on the presentation of the report of the Select Committee on Privileges 2022;”.
This motion has two aims. It gives the government certainty that the estimates committee report will be tabled in a timely manner and expedites the budget process. The motion sets a tabling date of no later than 30 September 2022. The motion also allows the estimates committee to continue to contribute as a committee to the enquiry on the Select Committee on Privileges 2022. This motion seeks to allow the estimates committee to continue until that privileges committee is dissolved. This is to allow the estimates committee to provide evidence and to release documents to the privileges committee, if required.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
The following response to a petition has been lodged:
Ngunnawal—traffic management—petition 9-22
By Mr Steel, Minister for Transport and City Services, dated 19 September 2022, in response to a petition lodged by Ms Castley on 2 June 2022, concerning parking at the Platypus Centre in Ngunnawal.
The response read as follows:
Dear Mr Duncan
Thank you for your letter of 2 June 2022 regarding petition 9-22, lodged by Ms Leanne Castley MLA requesting to create a one-way car park system at the Platypus Centre in Ngunnawal.
Traffic management and safety on the road network and access to car parking facilities is an area of ongoing community interest.
Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) will review the circulation aisle width requirements and turning requirements for both the car parking and the movement of delivery and waste vehicles within the carpark. This will allow TCCS to determine if improvements are required to the current traffic management arrangements.
TCCS will consult key stakeholders, including the lease holders within the Platypus Centre and the community who use the carpark, if improvements are recommended for the carpark or the traffic movements.
I trust this information is of assistance.
